Twitter new 280 character limit now available for all users
Twitter has today lifted its 140-character limit and then makes it possible for all users to enjoy 280-character. The micro-blogging platform has announced that it is satisfied with the test it started in September that allowed some users to double the character cap on tweets from 140 to 280.
Only 5% of tweets sent were longer than 140 characters while only 2% were over 190. Mind you, this data was collected before the limit was changed for the vast majority of Twitter users. We’d be interested to learn if we’ll see long tweets all the time, or if people will just keep it short and sweet as they’ve been doing since Twitter launched.
It is important to note that those writing in Japanese,
Chinese and Korean will continue to have a 140 character cap. It takes fewer
characters in those languages to say something that would take many more characters
to express in other languages.
Anyway, those whose limits have been raised will see a new circular character limit indicator, which replaces the digital counter.
